Description
  • Abstract

    The Tangail Survey (TS) constitutes a household level census of three contiguous villages in the Tangail district of Dhaka, Bangladesh. In addition to standard socioeconomic and demographic information (e.g. marital status, employment, age, gender, living conditions, etc.), the TS gathers information on international migration, perceptions of respondent's economic position relative to different reference groups (e.g. neighbors, colleagues, siblings, etc.), subjective well-being, and household GPS location coordinates. Data on roughly 1,400 households were collected in a single wave during the summer of 2013.

    On 2016-08-20, the openICPSR web site was moved to new software. In the migration process, some projects were not published in the new system because the decisions made in the old site did not map easily to the new setup. An ICPSR staff member manually published these projects, taking care to preserve the original wishes of the depositor.
